8 Items Interior Designers Never Have In Small Bathrooms

Large freestanding or built-in bathtubs can take up a significant amount of space in a small bathroom. Designers often opt for smaller, space-saving tubs or prioritize shower stalls instead.

Oversized Bathtubs

Massive bathroom vanities with excessive storage can make a small bathroom feel cramped. Designers may recommend wall-mounted or pedestal sinks to free up floor space.

Bulky Vanities

Excessive decor, such as too many wall hangings or knick-knacks, can make a small bathroom feel overcrowded.

Cluttered Decor

Dark colors on walls or fixtures can make a small bathroom feel even smaller. Designers often choose light, neutral colors to create an illusion of space and brightness.

Dark Colors

While mirrors can visually expand a room, overly large mirrors may overpower a small bathroom. Designers select appropriately sized mirrors to enhance the space without overwhelming it.

Large Mirrors

Lightweight or sheer curtains or no window treatments at all may be preferred to let in natural light.

Heavy Curtains

Bulky shelves or storage units can take up valuable wall space. Designers might recommend built-in niches, recessed shelving, or slim, open shelving to maximize storage without adding bulk.

Bulky Shelving

Too many towel bars, robe hooks, and other accessories can clutter a tiny bathroom. Designers choose a few functional and well-placed objects to organize the area.
